College Doesn’t Make Sense for Everyone

College Indoctrination Centers Run by Fire-proof Professors produce Liberals with no Critical Thinking Skills

Look at what our betters have done to the whole idea of a college education.

But when everybody starts talking about the things in life that are too expensive and that we’ve gotta bring the costs down, nobody seriously ever talks about lowering tuition. The student loan program is there to prop up highly paid faculty and student assistants, teachers assistants and so forth because the faculty is the training ground and the proving ground for bending and shaping and molding these young skulls full of mush into good little cookie cutter liberals.

The education system is propped up, and whether you’re any good at it or not, your job is safe. And it has become basically series of indoctrination centers.

Now, as I say, do not misunderstand. I am not here criticizing the concept of education. I’m all for it, folks. I’m the biggest believer of education you’ll ever run into. It is invaluable. It’s irreplaceable. You cannot fake knowledge. You cannot fake the experience that life teaches you. You cannot go through life without a foundation of knowledge and an ability to think and add to it. So don’t anybody confuse what I’m saying here. But I think that’s not happening much anymore. The ability to think is being suppressed. Conformity is being pushed on everybody.

Freedom of Speech stifled

Christina Hoff Sommers.

She’s a well-known conservative… Well, she was invited to speak at some college in Portland, and the students panicked and they considered what she was going to say to be the equivalent of a weapon threatening their safety.  They tried to get her appearance canceled.That failed.  So she shows up, she starts speaking, and they shout her down. They start calling her names. “Nazi, bigot,” this kind of stuff.  She said she was able to get through about half of her speech and then the dean interceded and instead of admonishing the students, said, “I think it’s time to wrap this up” and ushered everybody away — and it was just words!  It was just words, and it was an alternative way of thinking and believing, and these students felt threatened by it.

They succeeded in shutting it down.  Now, that’s not education.  That is… In fact, people paying to go to places that this happens are being ripped off every bit as much as you’re being ripped off anywhere else you get ripped off.  This is a giant scam to call that kind of thing education.

Students not taught how to think

This is not education that’s happening in too many places, and then after you pay for this, you come out of college brainwashed, propagandized.

And you’re unable to think because it’s been trained out of you. Thinking, coming up with alternative viewpoints, opposite ways of looking at things is considered poison! 

We are basically judging and claiming that people who do not go to college are not educated and are not sophisticated, not acculturated, and not desirable.  People who do go to college who may come out of there brain-dead, brainwashed, and literally trained to be just like every other robot graduating with them in their class are considered to be the future — and I think we’re beginning to see the ramifications of this kind of thing.It doesn’t do anybody any good to graduate a bunch of robots that are afraid of words, that cannot think, that cannot even explain why they believe what they believe, other than to say, “If you disagree, you’re hateful and I hate you!”  But if you can’t give anybody a substantive reason why you disagree with them, you just have to shut them up, shun them, or basically kick them out.  You’re not educated, and there certainly is nothing special about you.

You have just become a tool.  You become a lifelike robot of the American left.  And so a student who is able to think and wants to learn and can get somewhere in life by avoiding that? Fine with me, because that’s not education.  That’s not education. People that come out of school like this like these students that shut down Christina Hoff Sommers — and by the way, they’re not alone.  That’s just the latest example.

The whole snowflake example.  There’s not a conservative in this country that can be invited to major college campus anywhere and survive it.  By survive it, I mean give their speech.  They’ll be shut down.  They’ll be sent packing.  That’s not education happening at these places, but it’s said to be — and look at the prison you’re in when you graduate with all that student debt.

Liberal Policy Failures: a connection to Mental Illness and Gun Violence

Liberal Policy Failures: A connection to Mental Illness and Gun Violence

Liberal Policies—

Closing Mental Institutions Made Us More Vulnerable to Mass Shootings

Walter E. Williams

A liberal-created failure that goes entirely ignored is the left’s harmful agenda for society’s most vulnerable people—the mentally ill.

Eastern State Hospital, built in 1773 in Williamsburg, Virginia, was the first public hospital in America for the care and treatment of the mentally ill. Many more followed. Much of the motivation to build more mental institutions was to provide a remedy for the maltreatment of mentally ill people in our prisons.

According to professor William Gronfein at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, by 1955 there were nearly 560,000 patients housed in state mental institutions across the nation. By 1977, the population of mental institutions had dropped to about 160,000 patients.

Advocates: “Drugs fix all”

Starting in the 1970s, advocates for closing mental hospitals argued that because of the availability of new psychotropic drugs, people with mental illness could live among the rest of the population in an unrestrained natural setting.

According to a 2013 Wall Street Journal article by Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, founder of the Treatment Advocacy Center, titled “Fifty Years of Failing America’s Mentally Ill,” shutting down mental hospitals didn’t turn out the way advocates promised.

Several studies summarized by the Treatment Advocacy Center show that untreated mentally ill are responsible for 10 percent of homicides (and a higher percentage of the mass killings). They are 20 percent of jail and prison inmates and more than 30 percent of the homeless.

We often encounter these severely mentally ill individuals camped out in libraries, parks, hospital emergency rooms, and train stations, and sleeping in cardboard boxes. They annoy passersby with their sometimes intimidating panhandling.

The disgusting quality of life of many of the mentally ill makes a mockery of the lofty predictions made by the advocates of shutting down mental institutions and transferring their function to community mental health centers, or CMHCs.

The dollar cost of this liberal vision of deinstitutionalization of mentally ill people is a relatively small part of the burden placed on society.

Many innocent people have been assaulted, robbed, and murdered by mentally ill people. Business people and their customers have had to cope with the nuisance created by the mentally ill.

The police response to misbehavior and crime committed by the mentally ill is to arrest them. Thus, they are put in jeopardy of mistreatment by hardened criminals in the nation’s jails and prisons.

Worst of all is the fact that the liberals who engineered the shutting down of mental institutions have never been held accountable for their folly.
